Liverpool a bigger threat than Arsenal in race to sign 'outstanding' player

Liverpool are reportedly viewed as the biggest threat to Chelsea over keeping Mason Mount, with the Blues more worried about the Anfield side than Premier League leaders Arsenal.

According to 90min, the Reds pose a real challenge to Chelsea in their bid to keep the England international in west London, with Liverpool keen on signing Mount as the 24-year-old is yet to decide on his future ahead of the summer.

Lauded as ‘outstanding’ by Paul Merson, Liverpool have been linked with a move for Mount for quite some time, and with Jude Bellingham no longer an option for the Merseyside giants, the Chelsea star is being viewed as the ideal alternative.

However, interest from rival clubs could hinder Liverpool’s chances in signing Mount, with Arsenal now in the conversation to sign the England international as the Gunners also look set to add to their central midfield this summer.

Indeed, the north London side’s return to the UEFA Champions League and Mikel Arteta’s work at Arsenal could make the current Premier League leaders an incredibly appealing option for Mount. However, Liverpool could still have the edge in the race.

Arsenal might be on the up, yet that doesn’t make the Gunners guaranteed winners in the race for Mount, who would be wise to join Liverpool given the role the midfielder will likely have with the Merseyside giants.

Everyone is aware of the Reds’ midfield issues and how well Mount could solve these problems with his mere presence, and as a result, the 24-year-old would become an instant starter at Anfield, unlike at Arsenal where the playmaker will likely play second-fiddle to Martin Odegaard.
